iCanMed’s Online Learning Management System, Explained

Step-by-step video tutorials

The iCanMed learning management system has replicated the same test experience as the UCAT.

Functionality such as the timer, calculator and flagging are all available. Our questions are made to represent the latest UCAT exams in every way (i.e. length, difficulty, style, nuance, etc.)

For every one of the 2,500 UCAT questions in the course, students have the opportunity to review their working out process with exemplar solutions recommended by iCanMed.

A 5 to 15-minute video tutorial for every question shows the exact step-by-step question-solving process. We’ve done the hard work to make sure these techniques will never fail. All you need to do is to learn them well!

Ongoing teaching for Section 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5

The iCanMed learning management system teaches the UCAT in a curriculum-based sequence. The course is intuitively organised to help students learn knowledge and skill easily and comprehensively.

Ashton, iCanMed’s co-founder, equips students with section-specific insights, advice, know-how and recommendations to maximise learning efficiency.

Unlimited personal feedback

During any point of the course, students have unlimited opportunities to ask questions. Write the concern to our coaching team to respond with detailed personalised feedback within 24 hours, every day of the year. We are reachable via email, SMS, phone or Facebook as well. Ask anything from question-specific queries to study concerns or issues regarding motivation.

Our coaching team provides detailed feedback that is personalised to the issues you encounter and will continue to provide support until you fix the problem. We’ve received and answered over 50,000 messages over the last 18 months. Talk about unlimited support!

Helpful performance analytics

Click the incorrectly-answered question to be taken to the solutions review video to identify all mistakes in the solving process. The set up makes improving quick and straightforward.

Students can see which question took the longest to answer in our timed quizzes and mock exams to help isolate the exact reasons behind why they are not achieving top speed.

*Note: Masterclass 2 for NZ students is a live webinar session. This decision is due to constant changes to university schedules and extremely limited UCAT testing dates in certain NZ cities (e.g. in 2020, Dunedin UCAT dates were held only on the first seven days of July to sit UCAT, whereas in 2019 Dunedin UCAT dates were held on 17th and 21st of July).

**Depending on the university schedule

We've already completed 7/37 of our UCAT progress classes!

Over 700 2021/2022 candidates have started attending them!

Recordings are available, so catch up on the missed classes and be in time for our next class on 6/12!

2020 iCanMed Student
Scored 3340 in UCAT ANZ

I sat the UCAT twice – once in 2019, and once in 2020 with iCanMed. My score improved by over 500 points, which would not have been possible without iCanMed.

As opposed to just grinding through as many practice questions as possible like I did in the first time around, iCanMed’s approach is systematic and time-efficient, with a step-by-step guide to solve, and perfect, every single question type. I could feel my confidence slowly building as my techniques matured. Most importantly, iCanMed’s 24/7 support policy was just unbelievable and super helpful for someone like me, who left questions for Ashton under every second quiz I did for constant feedback.

2020 iCanMed Student

I was only with ICanMed for a short time for the UCAT, unlike other students. I purchased the Pro UCAT course in March of 2020 and planned to sit my UCAT in July 2020. In the beginning, I believed time and lack of preparation was going to be a huge set-back for me. However, the techniques which ICanMed provided and the personalised feedback given was so accurate and precise to my mistakes and learning style that there was no time wasted. This meant that I was able to catch up very efficiently, using their thorough techniques to reflect upon all my areas of improvement.

When I first heard about the switch from UMAT to UCAT, I realised that most of the tried and tested methods of medical admissions preparation had to be re-examined. After reading many questionable claims and ‘success stories’ from suspicious pre-2019 UCAT students, I had all but decided on purchasing a UK prep program, but I mean who could turn down a free UCAT workshop? It was at this workshop where I was sold, not by Michael’s Greek physique, but by his patience and insight. Even well after the conclusion of the workshop, Michael continued to answer question after question from my overly-anxious self.

I’m not surprised that the iCanMed cohort did so well in the 2020 intake round. When you craft a program which is expertly structured and combine it with one-on-one support unmatched by any competitor, success is certain. The development of a curriculum which analyses each of the 14 UCAT question types was what convinced me to use iCanMed, as students are taught exactly how to approach each question, which is astronomically better than just doing practice problems. We were also free to reach out to the team if we ever got stuck in our preparation, receiving a comprehensive response from Ashton in less than 24 hours (how he answered everyone is still a mystery).

If you’re looking at preparation courses not just to ace UCAT, but to actually get into Medicine, I would highly recommend signing up with iCanMed. Going into Year 12, I genuinely didn’t think that in a year’s time the thing that I would be ‘stressed’ about would be which medical school offer to accept. But because of iCanMed’s UCAT and interview training programs, I am in this amazing position today. 

One of the main reasons iCanMed’s program stands out to me more than any other is because they accompany their comprehensive UCAT training with genuine 24/7 support.

Just like many of us who want to do med, facing the UCAT and the super long road to med in Year 12 was really daunting to me and I felt pretty scared and was certain med was out of my reach. I joined iCanMed after attending a free lecture they gave at school and I can certainly recommend their online modules and in-person workshops. A lot of people have no idea how to approach an aptitude test like UCAT, and iCanMed gave really helpful guidance that ultimately got me through and helped me achieve a competitive UCAT score.

As a highly neurotic high school med prospective student, searching for the right resources to prepare for the behemoth that was the newly introduced UCAT was a struggle. As much as I hate to admit my foolish diligence, all of my work for the UMAT was lost, leaving me in a limbo of delusional doomsaying (yeah, I started UMAT prep really early). My instincts jumped to exploring UKCAT resources, a route I followed for a while until I realised I was simply reinforcing poor time-inefficient ways to approach questions. It was only then that I realised the true value of iCanMed’s approach to test preparation.

I first enrolled in iCanMed’s UMAT course in June 2018 and, filled with a boost of motivation, immediately got started on their endless catalogue of comprehensive video tutorials and practice questions. Less than three months later, I’d finally made a dent in the coursework when the UMAT Consortium announced that the 2019 UMAT was entirely replaced by the UCAT—something that initially shocked and incited panic in many prospective medical applicants like me who would be the first in Australia to sit this exam.

I first came across iCanMed back in 2017, and I remember back then being completely lost on how to prepare for the medical school interview. But having known the founder, Michael Tsai for the past two years, without a shadow of a doubt he and iCanMed have been instrumental in helping me gain offers to Monash, UNSW, JCU and UWS. I’ve experienced interview courses from other companies, and iCanMed surpasses them by leaps and bounds. I consider myself someone who loves structure, and the fact that the interview course is centred around an intuitive curriculum makes it really easy to not only learn the material and have a sense of direction while doing so, but also find the gaps in my understanding and address them.
